Deskbar suggestion: different icons for menus

By default and after a clean Haiku installation, there are 4 menus that allow to run apps in the deskbar:

  • Applications
  • Demos
  • Desktop applets
  • Preferences

All use the same icon (folder like): I think having a different icon for each (for eg. it’s quite common in every operating system to use the Gears icon for the settings/preferences) would help distinguish each menu.



AFAIK, those menus are a stopgap solution, they are supposed to be replaced with something better anyway. My biggest gripe with them is that their localisations are broken, and they need something like categories.


It use to look something like this. Of course if you customize the menu options to override the bluefolders, you get the same.
